At Event Rentals Unlimited there are two things we’re absolutely, madly in love with…party rentals and CANDY! So no surprise that Halloween is a favorite holiday amongst the team. But not all candy is created equal – there are so many to choose from and each has their own personality. This got us thinking…what does our candy of choice say about us?
This fun blog on Halloween eve was conducted with highest of integrity and sound research (we assure you): We asked our team (aka candy professionals #candyprofs) to tell us about their favorite candy, we then took to the research lab (world wide web) to cross-reference personality traits most associated (high correlation) with those who reported a fondness for each. We hope you enjoy this sweet read learning a little more about our team and their candy habits.
No denying, the KIT KAT bar is the candy with the coolest candy jingle ever. ‘Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that…’ (and, you’re welcome for the ear worm!) The person that claims KIT KAT as their favorite candy is also the coolest – laid back, social and loved by others. Knowing that this is ERU Birmingham’s PEGGY LEE‘S favorite makes it all the more fitting! Peggy shares, “I love anything chocolate…but KIT KATS most of all!” Breaking off a piece of this crisp candy for an office break or for Halloween is one sweet treat!
In doing research we found that those in love with the seasonal favorite, CANDY CORN, are just as traditional about their holidays as they are their candy. Candy Corn lovers typically care about Halloween and traditions and children and family values and all things patriotic – and would you know, this rings true for ERU Birmingham’s BECKY GRAHAM! Becky shared with us that candy corn PUMPKINS are actually her absolute favorite. We love that this is the perfect ‘adult’ candy for putting in a dish and having on your desk…a great way to make friends, which Becky has a lot of!
The SNICKERS recipe contains all things heavenly in the candy world – nougat topped with caramel and peanuts and covered with milk chocolate – yes please! It’s a combination of ingredients that are complicated but always there for you. These characteristics are defining of ERU Atlanta’s JANDI HOLCOMB too…who just so happens to call SNICKERS her favorite. This is a candy bar that doesn’t fit into a box and is perfectly fine with that. Seriously, what’s not to love about this candy confidence!
A crowd favorite, TWIX is the only Halloween candy with a ‘cookie crunch!’ We love that this bite sized treat is unique with more layers than just what you see on the outside – qualities befitting of our ERU team members, MIKE POZOWICZ and MEREDITH CULLEN, who call this candy their favorite! What’s not to love about crunch and caramel in every bite?! A super fan of this food, ERU Birmingham’s Mike Pozowicz goes as far to share with us that he’s a fan of the Twix song too. All we have to say to that is, ‘Oh Yeah…”
The REESE’S cup candy is the free spirit of candies in the Halloween bowl. This treat marches to it’s own beat – while always looking it’s best. Hey, that describes both of our ERU Atlanta team members, ARNIE SEYDEN and ASHTON WHITE, who call this candy their fav! In researching Reese’s fans we learned that you don’t mess around with these sweet peeps. While they’re loved by many, they are tried, true and not afraid to speak their mind!
100 GRAND BAR
Worth its weight in gold, The 100 GRAND BAR is deliciously impressive. A candy bar that’s humble and unpretentious…surprising with a name like ‘100 Grand,’ right? We think those are great qualities for a candy AND for a team member. ERU Atlanta’s KATHY JOHNSON shared with us that hands down the 100 Grand Bar is her favorite. ‘It’s naughty and delicious,’ she says. Mmmmm, we couldn’t agree more.
TWIZZLERS & BUTTERFINGER BARS
An odd combination of candy favorites, right? Well, maybe not! TWIZZLERS, in all their crazy colors, bring silly to Halloween and remind us not to take life too seriously. BUTTERFINGER BARS love being the center of attention – sweet but their butter crunch brings on clumsy crumbs with every bite. They both bring fun (with a touch of sweetness) to the Halloween bowl and this is right in line with ERU Atlanta’s RENEE ROEBUCK who when asked her favorite just couldn’t decide on one…we love her for that!
Now that you know the dish on ERU’s
